I am so thrilled to share this gorgeous Utah wedding with you all today! It has everything- a gorgeous couple, a modern and elegant gray and white color palette, fabulous details, and to top it off, fabulous photos from Pepper Nix Photography! Plus, the bride has some incredible advice to share with us!
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
We planned a wedding in Park City, Utah from Houston, Texas, so one of the first things we did was hire Riehl Events (Jacque Riehl and her amazing team) as our wedding planner. We could not have done it without them. Jacque helped us with every last detail…including staying on track with our budget. She made the day seamless and relaxing for us and our guests.
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
We wanted to make sure we captured the special moments of our day, so we focused a lot of effort on the photography and videography. It is easy these days to browse through portfolios on the internet, but the personality behind the camera is just as important . We narrowed down our preferences based on what we could see online, and then we interviewed our top 2-3 candidates over the phone. You really will be sharing some intimate moments with your photographer and videographer, so make sure you have the same idea of what you want to capture and make sure you connect on a personal level! We still keep in touch with our photographer…we hired her for a wedding, but we ended up with a new friend!
What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?
We wanted a “natural elegant” affair to accentuate the beauty of Park City, not compete with it.
What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
We served dinner in the ball room, and then we moved the party outside for dancing under the stars! Everyone had a blast!
What is your best piece of advice for other brides?
We were on the fence about taking our photos ahead of the ceremony, but I would do it again a thousand times over. It was so nice to head straight to the reception with the guests.
How gorgeous was that!? I just love how this couple kept a classic elegant feel to modern and beautiful details! What did you think of this bride’s advice? Will you be taking photos before the ceremony? Have you thought about doing a first look or a first touch? Or maybe you’ve thought up something completely original!?
I can’t wait to hear!
